Can't get rid of virus

  DMAN 18:54 03 Feb 2005

I have a inst.EXE trojan horse dialer.12.Al on computer which avg keeps picking up and healing. The problem is that once it's healed it reappears again at some point.

What can I do to completely get rid of this once and for all?

Do you have 'system restore' on your computer? I believe you have to turn it off, remove the virus, and then start afresh with 'SR'. I believe that SR keeps a copy of the virus so you will not be able to remove it. I am sure someone will let you know if this is correct.

Hi, I think this should work - go off-line, then disable System Restore, then run AVG again. Also run Ad-Aware or similar. When completed do a re-start of your pc, then re-enable System Restore. Hopefully this will solve the problem -fingers crossed.
